This dark green, grained leather Travelling Jewellery Case is an unusual but very practical variation of most seen.
Instead of having a lift up lid with removable trays, the case stands upright with the lid falling to act as a silk padded tray. The top 4, short drawers are hinged to their sides to swing out when their leather tab handle is pulled. These all have the same internal arrangement with a padded groove to hold rings upright and a plain compartment to the front. The top full length drawer has a central divider but the drawer below is plain. The drawers are all completely covered in leather and lined with padded, salmon pink velvet.
The case retains its key for the slide lock and has a padded handle. For taking a medium amount of jewellery whilst travelling, this is an ideal case. Early 20th Century.
